MICROBLADING IS A "DRY HEAL" DO NOT GET WET, AND NO SWEATING FOR 10 DAYS
DO NOT rub, pick or scratch the treated area. Let any scabbing or dry skin naturally exfoliate off. Picking can cause scarring and pigment loss!
COMPLETELY AVOID direct sun exposure and tanning beds for a minimum of 4 weeks after your procedure. Direct sunlight can cause the pigment to change color while it is healing and can also cause hyper pigmentation and scarring.
Avoid pool, sauna, steam rooms, steamy hot showers and/or steamy hot baths for 3 weeks.
Avoid sweating for a full 10 days. Any physical effort, gym, hot weather, any other activity that may cause sweating through or on the brows will cause the "hairstrokes" to blur under the skin, there is no fixing this.
Wash face with makeup wipes so no water drips on the brows, and no washing hair in shower, your brows might get wet. Use dry shampoo or go get your hair washed at a salon or lay back in your bath to wash your hair so eyebrows do not get wet for the first 10 days.
Avoid sleeping on your face/brows for the first 10 days.
NO makeup or skincare products to be used on the treated area for two weeks.
NO facials, chemical treatments and microdermabrasion for 4 weeks.
After 10 days, once the area has healed completely, consider using sunblock when going out in the sun to stop the color from fading.
Eyebrow tinting should not be undertaken for 2 weeks after your procedure.
Avoid Retin-A, Chemical Peels and Microderms around the brow area once healed.
AVOID ANY SKINCARE THAT HAS THE WORDS "ACID" "RETIN A" "GLYCOL" ON THE AREA TREATED! Look in your foundations and primers too, it's in the things that say "long lasting" or "forever"
MACHINE BROWS POST-CARE:
DIFFERENT TECHNIQUE THAN MICROBLADING, DIFFERENT TOOL, DIFFERENT DESIRED OUTCOME MEANS DIFFERENT HEALING PROCESS.
Rinse the tattoo with clean water and clean hands 3-4x a day. Pat dry/blot(DO NOT SMEAR) with disposable paper towel(nothing reusable like washcloths) the excess water off your brows. ALL LYMPH SHOULD BE REMOVED.
Apply a thin layer of Aquaphor(NO GLOBS) after rinsing & pat drying, reapply throughout the day as needed.
After 7 days if there is still flaking, you can switch to a water-based lotion such as Jergens or Lubriderm.
NO perfumes, NO dyes, NO acids.
By keeping the skin moist and rinsing often, we prevent the lymph fluid from drying and forming scabs. This cuts back on most flaking, although you will most likely still have some flaking happen.
EYEBROWS- Typical Effects
Day1-2: The eyebrows are approximately 20 to 25% darker and bolder in width than they will be when healed. Your skin is red under the pigment which causes the color of the pigment to appear darker. There is some swelling, although difficult to see due to the thickness of the skin in the eyebrow area. This will subside. Exfoliation, which begins in a few days, will cause the excess pigment surrounding the eyebrow procedure to flake away and a more narrow appearance will result. New skin will heal over the pigmented area and result in a softer appearance of your eyebrows. Don’t be concerned that your eyebrows initially appear darker and heavier in size than you desire. This is all part of the process.
Day3: Eyebrows will start to itch and will appear a bit thicker in texture. Natural exfoliation begins.. do not exfoliate yourself.
Day4: The skin begins to flake- peeling from the outside edges first.
Day5: Color finishes flaking off and appears softer and greyer for 8 weeks until color clarifies.
AVOID ANY SKINCARE THAT HAS THE WORDS "ACID" "RETIN A" "GLYCOL" ON THE AREA TREATED!
